WHAT YOU NEED:
1 1/4 Cup White Chocolate Chips ( I like the Guittard or Ghirardelli kind)
1 quart or 4 cups Half and Half *half and half is a mixture of half cream and milk that's sold in the dairy section- you could just use 2 more cups of milk and and 2 cups of cream or heavy whipping cream to substitute)
3/4 Heavy Whipping Cream
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Peppermint Extract (I toned the pepperminty-ness down for you guys, but I like to put 2 Tablespoons)
Candy Canes for stir-stick garnish DIRECTIONS (aka NOW WHAT?)
In a medium saucepan, mix white chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream over medium heat. Keep stirring until all the chips are melted.
Then, add in the half and half, milk and vanilla and peppermint extract.
Keep on a'stirrin' til it all mixed, melted and warm!
I like to use a gigantic bowl-like wooden spoon I have to fill up the mugs and teacups. And it makes me feel like the mom from Little House On The Prarie with her big pots cooking over the fire and big wooden spoons. Then you can top with whipped cream (I still need to share my recipe for my Tasty Homemade Whipped Cream, it's so good I used to whip it up every night!)...
and put a candy cane in each cup....it makes it looks so fun!
